The Goldhead Pyramid-Top Queen Biopic

Steven Soderbergh taps Guided By Voices to score 3D Cleopatra musical...


For his next directing effort, Steven Soderbergh is plotting a 3-D live-action rock ‘n’ roll musical about Cleopatra.

He is courting Catherine Zeta-Jones to play the Egyptian queen and Hugh Jackman to play her lover, Marc Antony.

The $30 million “Cleo” will be shopped for financing and distribution within the next two weeks. Greg Jacobs is producing with Casey Silver.

The music has been written by the indie rock band Guided by Voices, and the script is by James Greer, a former bass player for the band and an author.

in the summer that you left
meso-potamia, it was hot there

and the legions that you led were busy
raping 'gyptians

while the sun god i call Ur was sleeping, in his sphinx-bed

but i done asped you! no need for swords or spears now
i i'm gonna rule the sand, you can go on back to Rome!
